What a practical person you must be Fairygirl! My choices were pretty flowers and a romantic novel. Fat lot of use they would be!

I'd need a map and compass as well though, BL !

Spending more time 'considering' and planning rather than doing...

I do clean pots...sometimes. Depends what's been in them and for how long

Adders are very common on the route heading up Mount Keen (the most easterly of the Munros) Saw some when I was last there 

You'd hate it here just now Hosta 

Might need the dinghy tomorrow B'man. Mind you, with the wind they're forecasting, I think it would behave more like a light aircraft   

Good to 'see' you Steve. You do get about a bit!

Seven fir trees, and one palm......

...then I could cut 'em up and make a raft to get the hell out of there.... the palm would provide the means to lash them together   

Of course, the luxury item would have to be an axe or a saw....

Supposed to be a bit better on Sunday Lesley. Bet you're glad you don't have to go to Fife or beyond today with the bridge situation 

Lots of flooding today B'man. Get your waders looked out 

Doubt I'll be in the garden after work this afternoon!

Stay warm and dry and have a good day everyone.

Morning people. Middling to hellish here - cold and wet and windy, but we've missed the snow - again - hurrah! Sorry Lesley and LP. That spell worked really well....

When's the big reveal then W'song? 

Great news chicky. It's a big relief to be out the other side. Get some rest today if possible. Love to you all x 

Pat - I should go  to the optician too - I'm worried that new glasses might show up more dust though....

It was horrible sleet here at that time LP. Not many hills between me and the coast so not quite cold enough for it to become snow. It's supposed to come in later tonight. They're saying it'll turn back to rain. Hope it doesn't give you any problems. Nice to look at - from inside!

I saw the early evening news LP - and they were forecasting a big dod of snow right across central and southern Scotland. Hasn't arrived here - yet - perhaps we won't get it...been lucky so far 

Stay tucked up

Sorry Panda 

It's pretty vile now - and back down to a couple of degrees. The joys of the Scottish weather...
